Pleural Space Elastance and Its Relation to Success Rates of Pleurodesis in Malignant Pleural Effusion.

Tuberc Respir Dis (Seoul) 2021 Jan 9;84(1):67-73. Epub 2020 Nov 9.

Department of Chest Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Cairo University, Cairo, Egypt.

Background: Pleurodesis fails in 10%-40% of patients with recurrent malignant pleural effusions malignant pleural effusion and dyspnea. This study aimed to assess the values of pleural elastance (PEL) after the aspiration of 500 mL of pleural fluid and their relation to the pleurodesis outcome, and to compare the pleurodesis outcome with the chemical characteristics of pleural fluid.

Methods: A prospective study was conducted in Kasr El-Aini Hospital, Cairo University, during the period from March 2019 to January 2020. Read More

Pre-EDIT: A Randomized Feasibility Trial of Elastance-Directed Intrapleural Catheter or Talc Pleurodesis in Malignant Pleural Effusion.

Chest 2019 12 30;156(6):1204-1213. Epub 2019 Jul 30.

Pleural Disease Unit, Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow, UK; Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation, University of Glasgow, Glasgow, UK. Electronic address:

Background: Talc slurry pleurodesis (TSP) prevents recurrence of symptomatic malignant pleural effusion (MPE) in 71% to 78% patients. Nonexpansile lung (NEL) frequently accounts for TSP failure but is often occult predrainage, impairing selection of patients. NEL is associated with high pleural elastance (P), but technical limitations have hampered the development of P as a predictive NEL marker. Read More

Pre-EDIT: protocol for a randomised feasibility trial of elastance-directed intrapleural catheter or talc pleurodesis (EDIT) in malignant pleural effusion.

BMJ Open Respir Res 2018 29;5(1):e000293. Epub 2018 May 29.

Pleural Disease Unit, Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow, UK.

Introduction: Non-expansile lung (NEL) is a common cause of talc pleurodesis (TP) failure in malignant pleural effusion (MPE), but is often occult prior to drainage. Reliable detection of NEL would allow patients to be allocated between intrapleural catheter (IPC) and TP. High pleural elastance (P) has been associated with NEL in observational studies. Read More

KSHV/HHV8-negative effusion-based lymphoma, a distinct entity associated with fluid overload states.

Am J Surg Pathol 2013 Feb;37(2):241-9

David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, CA, USA.

Human herpesvirus-8 (HHV8)-positive effusion-based lymphomas have been termed primary effusion lymphoma (PEL) in the WHO Classification of Tumours of Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues. Kaposi sarcoma herpesvirus (KSHV)/HHV8-negative effusion-based lymphomas (KSHV/HHV8-negative EBLs) resembling PELs have been reported in the literature and in many cases have been (mis)classified as PEL-like lymphomas. Herein, we present a series of cases and a review of KSHV/HHV8-negative EBLs. Read More

Cytologic diagnosis of primary effusion lymphoma in an HIV-negative patient.

Kaohsiung J Med Sci 2008 Oct;24(10):548-52

Department of Pathology, Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital, Kaohsiung Taiwan.

Primary effusion lymphoma (PEL) is an unusual and rare type of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma characterized by lymphomatous effusion of pleural, pericardial or peritoneal cavities without lymphadenopathy or organomegaly. It is associated with human herpes virus-8 (HHV-8) and occurs most often in immunodeficient patients. We present a case of PEL in a 69-year-old male presenting with pleural effusion and ascites.

[Guideline 'Differentiated thyroid carcinoma', including diagnosis of thyroid nodules].

Ned Tijdschr Geneeskd 2007 Aug;151(32):1777-82

Universitair Medisch Centrum Groningen, afd. Interne Geneeskunde, subafd. Endocrinologie, Groningen.

Differentiated thyroid carcinoma is a rare disease. Appropriate diagnosis, treatment and follow-up are complex but greatly influence treatment outcomes and patient quality of life. Patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma present in many hospitals throughout the Netherlands, underscoring the need for uniformity in diagnosis and treatment. Read More

Aspiration of dead space allows isocapnic low tidal volume ventilation in acute lung injury. Relationships to gas exchange and mechanics.

Intensive Care Med 2001 Sep;27(9):1496-503

Department of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, University Federico II, Napoli, Italy.

Objective: In acute lung injury (ALI) mechanical ventilation damages lungs. We hypothesised that aspiration and replacement of dead space during expiration (ASPIDS) allows normocapnic ventilation at higher end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) and reduced tidal volume (V(T)), peak and plateau pressures (Paw(peak), Paw(plat)), thus avoiding lung damage.

Setting: University Hospital. Read More

Which cytological criteria are the most discriminative to distinguish carcinoma, lymphoma, and soft-tissue sarcoma? A probabilistic approach.

Diagn Cytopathol 1997 Nov;17(5):333-8

Department of Pathology, Medical Faculty, Maastricht University, The Netherlands.

The reliability of fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNA) for distinguishing between carcinoma, lymphoma, and sarcoma was established in a previous study (Thunnissen et al., Cytopathology 1993; 4:107-114). The purpose of this study was to investigate which criteria were useful for a probabilistic diagnosis. Read More

Reliability of fine needle aspiration cytology for distinguishing between carcinoma, lymphoma and sarcoma; the influence of clinical information.

Cytopathology 1993 ;4(2):107-14

Department of Pathology, University of Limburg, Maastricht, The Netherlands.

To investigate interobserver variation of fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytological diagnosis with respect to distinguishing between carcinoma, sarcoma and lymphoma, a set of 80 randomly sampled slides was randomized twice and read 'blindly' by five cytopathologists. In the first round the slides were read without any information, and in the second round clinical information was provided. Histology was used as a reference standard. Read More

Assessment of distant metastases with ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy and cytologic study in carcinoma of the esophagus and gastroesophageal junction.

Gastrointest Radiol 1992 ;17(4):305-10

Department of Radiology, University Hospital Rotterdam-Dijkzigt, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

The use of ultrasound (US)-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) for the assessment of distant metastases was prospectively studied in 135 consecutive patients with carcinoma of the esophagus and gastroesophageal junction. Patients with accessible lesions on US and computed tomographic (CT) studies of the supraclavicular regions and the abdomen underwent US-guided FNAB. In patients with multiple lesions biopsies were preferentially performed on enlarged supraclavicular nodes. Read More

Supraclavicular lymph node metastases in carcinoma of the esophagus and gastroesophageal junction: assessment with CT, US, and US-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy.

Radiology 1991 Apr;179(1):155-8

Department of Radiology, University Hospital Rotterdam-Dijkzigt, Erasmus University, The Netherlands.

The preoperative assessment of supraclavicular lymph node metastases was prospectively studied in 100 patients with carcinoma of the esophagus and gastroesophageal junction. Findings at computed tomography (CT), ultrasound (US), and palpation were compared, and US-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy of nodes with a small axis of 5 mm or greater was performed. Supraclavicular metastases were detected on CT scans in 11 of 13 patients (85%) and on US scans in 14 of 16 patients (88%) but were palpable in only three of the 16 patients (19%). Read More

Ultrasound and ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy of supraclavicular lymph nodes in patients with esophageal carcinoma.

Cancer 1991 Feb;67(3):585-7

Department of Radiology, University Hospital Dijkzigt, Erasmus University, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

The use of ultrasound combined with ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy (UGFAB) of supraclavicular lymph nodes in the pretreatment staging of 37 patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus is described. All patients underwent computed tomography (CT) scans of the chest and the abdomen and ultrasound of the abdomen and supraclavicular regions. Supraclavicular lymph node metastases (Stage IV disease according to the tumor nodes metastasis [TNM] classification) were cytologically diagnosed in seven (18. Read More
